A Guitar Song Poem by Walterrean Salley

A Guitar Song

Rating: 4.7


It has entertained the masses
O’er the stretch of time,
And has seen its heyday
In the light and the lime.

The guitar is fashioned
A stringed instrument
That mirrors the heart
With rhythmic sentiments.

And like an old friend
That never goes away—
The guitar is a staple,
That is here to stay.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
For, both, the guitarist and the non guitarist—all who love the guitar.

Even an old guitar with its strings broken is treasured as a keepsake to remember the sweet melodies once played on it, enthralling many an ear! ! A simple and sweet poem! !

nice description of a guitar song. In the past, guitar used to play in a salon only but now it is a concert string instrument because the guitar can project the sound clearly and loudly.
